I'm very sorry to inform you all that we will not be playing today. We ended up not having enough players to field a full team. I sincerely apologize for the late notice, this was a quick as I could get it out. Tell you son that I feel for him if he's disappointed and I'm sorry for the inconvenience that this change of plans is.

We have 11 players confirmed for tomorrow's game. I'm thinking we will go for it with no subs and pray for no injuries. If any parents are uncomfortable with that, please let me know and we won't play, that's totally ok.

Let's go have some fun in a playoff game Sharks!

Please have your son at Kennedy high school at 11:15 for warmups. Game at noon.

If we are playing

I have 7 players that said they can play tomorrow, I'm waiting on 5 more replies to see if we can field a team of 12. If we don't get to 12, we won't play and will have to forfeit, I'm sorry for the late notice, I've been doing my best to communicate. Thank you to all the families for your commitment this year!

I recently found out that we were scheduled for a playoff game this Saturday at noon at Kennedy High school. Could you all please reply to this and tell me if your son can make it? If not, that's ok. This has all been late notice and none of us were prepared for a playoff game.

Thanks, Stephen

jerseys

Hey,

So here's the deal with jerseys. Sportline messed up the order really bad, so we have two options: Order your official jersey right now and it will be here in six weeks with the name on it, or wait to order it next year before the season starts if your son plays again.

Please let me know which you'd prefer and I'll make it happens. Sorry about this inconvenience.
October 17th, 2019

Our game is this Friday at 5:30 pm at Long Lake Ranch. Please have your son there at 4:30. Good luck Sharks!

Bennet's BBQ Fundraising

September 12th, 2019

Fundraising

Sharks,

Hey all a few things. Since I got zero feedback for the Pomona game we are going to cancel that, maybe we'll try something else in the future. Thanks for getting me the money for the helmet decals I still need payment from a couple players however. Just whenever you can get that to me would be awesome. We had such a hard time with jerseys and such this year that two things are happening, one we no longer have to pay for the names on the jerseys, and unfortunately this season we won't be able to do a spirit wear order. By the time it would be completed it would be the end of the season. Since we now have a team though and won't have to do most of this next year we'll be able to start that immediately and get stuff before season starts next year.

Ok on to fundraisers, don't forget garlic knot pizza night Next week...the 17th from 6pm-8pm. If you could text me or email me a possible headcount this weekend so I can tell the restaurant would be rad! It will be a fun night were the boys can bond and we can raise some money for them!

Popcorn sales can be done in cash or check no card I was misinformed. Please have the checks made out to the parent who will be taking the orders and can cash the checks, because I will only be able to accept cash for all the orders we make. The order forms and money will be due by practice the day of October 3rd! It takes about 10 business days to get the order back if people ask we should have the order no later than Oct. 26th our last game of the season.

For both of these fundraisers we get to keep 50%(minus shipping/taxes) so the more people you can get involved the better. We are fundraising for our end of season party for the players (location, food, activities) as well as for gifts for coaches for donating their time and hearts to these kiddos. And depending on how much is raised a gift for the players as well, what we gift will be dependent on how much we raise. If each player raised $100 that would be $1600 which would be a great starting goal! If you all have any other questions or ideas for gifts shoot me a message or email!

Thank you all so much for participating!
September 6th, 2019

today’s Practice

Hey Parents,

First off, I would like to apologize for changing this weeks schedule with short notice. I was trying to do the best thing for the team, but I know changes makes it very tough for a families schedule.

Just a reminder, today's practice will be in full pads.

Thanks for everything you all do.

- Stephen
September 4th, 2019

However, we wanted to invite any team or individual who would like to participate in this weekends parade. If you are intersted in particpating contact Sumer Schantz for more information. See the preliminary information below.

The parade officially starts at 9am but everyone should be in place no later than 745-8am. Please tell your parents to allow for parking and locating the staging spot on 57th between Cody and Dover Street. Most streets are closed down so it can take some time to navigate your way. Last year some teams met uo at a different location and walked together.

This is a great event to be a part of and a great opportunity to put AYFA on display.

September 2nd, 2019

Sharks!

Sharks!

Well done at weigh ins! Everyone did so great and now we can move on to the fun things! First off here are a couple sign up genius links for game days please sign up for at least one if not one on each. This league and this team cannot properly function for the players without volunteers! So thank you in advance!


Game snack sign up genius: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0D4AADA62EA0FD0-game

Game day Chain Gang sign up: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0D4AADA62EA0FD0-chain

I will have our spirit wear order forms very soon this in itself is a fundraiser. By buying Arvada Sharks t-shirts, hoodies, hats, and so on, we raise money for Jersey name plates, coaches game day shirts, and maybe even some pink socks or something for breast cancer awareness month! I'll explain more on this as I get it!

Next week I will be passing out order forms for Double Good popcorn. This is another fundraiser for the players. Again I'll go into more detail when the papers arrive. But for now know that this fundraiser is for an end of the year party for the players and possibly some trophies or medals! Something to look forward to!

I'm waiting to hear back from Buffalo Wild Wings and Garlic Knot, to know if they are willing to host fundraiser nights for us as well!

Crafty Parents! It would be really amazing if I could get some parents to do some crafting projects for the team. We need someone to create a book, if you will, for this season. Something to contain our calendar, our contact list (for carpooling and caravaning too), and our players!
We need someone to make little rosters for game day so we can get to know each player by name and number!
And someone to possibly make tags/lanyards/buttons whathave you with the players for each family to wear so we can start to get to know each other better as well.
And any other crafty things as well! I was thinking some of the siblings might want to make some signs for the games on poster board!

Speaking of getting to know each other we have 2 opportunities to be able to do some team building with the players. As you may have seen we have a High School coach volunteering his time too. He attends and plays for Pomona one of our local teams! So on September 7th at Pomona High School at 11:00am bring your player to watch the JV team beat Bear Creek! (This game is free) Then September 13th join us at NAAC for a Varsity game against Valor at 7:30pm (this game is $4 for students and I believe $6 for adults). We will have the players sit together and wear their jerseys!

Last but not least (for now 😉) how many families would be interested in sharing themed potluck dinners Thursday nights after practice? Share some dinner, bond, and not have to worry about what to make one night a week? If it is something you would be interested in message me and we'll make it happen!


In the mean time watch for emails. I send at least one a week. I'll try to get them sent on Mondays!

Thank you so much everyone!

Alec Sungy

I'm sad to report that Alec Sungy broke his collar bone yesterday on the last play of the game. It's a smaller break, so he MIGHT be able to return sometime this season. He'll still be at Weigh ins tomorrow with us. Show Alec some love and support the next time you see him!

Hey Parents,

This Week

Hey Parents,

Here is our (most likely) schedule for the week.

Monday - Wednesday normal practice 5:30-7:30 at Warder. The most likely part is I'm waiting on confirmation from a coach for a scrimmage on Thursday. So I will let you know when that is 100%. No practice on Friday for sure.

Also, a reminder that weigh ins is this Saturday 8/24 from 8:45-9:00 am at Dicks sports goods in the Flatirons Mall.

Our game schedule has not been released yet. I will send it out when I get it.

If you have kids that you know that are interested in playing with us, we still could use a couple more!

Thanks,

Stephen

WE WILL NOT HAVE ANY GAMES THIS WEEKEND. I am going to contact the other 6th grade coaches to see if we can schedule a scrimmage during our normal practice hours this week. I'm sorry for the last minute communication, I've been doing everything I can this week to get things sorted out. Thanks!

July 31st, 2019

Hello and Welcome!

Hey everyone!

My name is Stephen Clark and I will the be the head coach for this 6th grade Arvada Team! I am so excited to meet all of you and to get things started! Plenty of things to get to in this letter, I'll start with a self-intro:

- I live in Aravda, near 64th & Ward. I am single and 31 years old. I played tackle football for 6 years, but this is my first year coaching. For the last 10 years I have worked as a Chrstian Missionary. I signed on late to be a coach, so that is while this email might seem a little late, my apologies.

Now let's get to the announcements I have for you.

- We need to schedule a TEAM MEETING before practice starts. Does Sunday at 5:30 @ Warder Elem. work for everyone? I will need at least one parent and the player there, thank you.

- Our PRACTICES will be Monday, Wednesday, Thursday from 5:30 - 7:30 @ Warder Elementary near 78th & Carr. The first 3 days will be no pads, and we will have a week 1 only Friday practice, same time same place, for the first day of pads.

- I need one parent to volunteer to be the TEAM MANAGER and one to be the TEAM PARENT. Please let me know asap if you would be willing to serve in one of these roles.

- I also need at least two ASSISTANT COACHES, I do not have any yet. Please let me know if you would be interested in being an assistant coach.

- You will need to bring a doctor's proof of a PHYSICAL to our team meeting. The player will not be able to play in PADS until we have the proof of physical.

- You will be able to pick up your UNIFORMS AND PADS at Sportline in Arvada, get fitted for a WHITE helmet, with a BLACK facemask. Please get Black pants. Your number will be picked for you. If you are a returning player and your jersey still fits you, you do not need to get a new jersey. Please get to sportline asap to get a jersey that fits you, we don't want to have to order any if the size isn't in stock. Please buy a white practice jersey as well, red if white is not in stock.

- Please bring your proof of physical, a copy of a REPORT CARD, and a copy of BIRTH CERTIFICATE to our team meeting.

- And lastly, We have the oportunity to play in a tournament 8/16 - 8/18. The cost is $350 per team. That's not too expensive per player with 17 on our team as of now. But this is optional.

That should be it for now! Thank you all for your time and we will be in contact!

Please contact me, phone or email, whenever you have questions.

- Stephen
